Carrying Heroes is able to rescue horses and help heroes because of the generosity of people just like you! Your donation allows us to continue offering support to veterans and first responders at no cost to them.
Donate by clicking "donate now" or use one of the other methods listed at the bottom of the page.
We are volunteer-run so 100% of your donation goes straight to horse care and related program costs.
We don't receive government funding so we rely solely on private donations and small local grants.
Thank you for considering donating to our cause!
When you donate to Carrying Heroes, your money goes straight to horse feed and care, along with basic program operations. No money is spent on salaries. A small percentage goes toward outreach, fundraising, equipment, and other expenses like our office lease.
On occasion, we rescue horses that must be purchased in order to get them to safety. There are usually transportation costs, veterinary costs, and extra feed and care requirements. We fundraise separately and specifically for these situations so that general donations are only used for our general day-to-day operations. The same is true for emergency veterinary needs like surgery – we fundraise separately and specifically for these situations. If you ever want to make a donation towards our Rescue Fund or Emergency Fund, simply let us know when you make the donation. There are thousands of horses like these, and we can only give them a chance when people choose to give..
To become a monthly supporter, simply click "donation form" below then select "monthly donation" on the donation form. (You may use the same form for one-time donations.) Those who give $25 a month or more, or make a one-time donation of $250 or more, will be invited to our "Donor Days" at the ranch. Donor Days are the only time non-participants are able to tour the ranch and meet the horses. Email us for more info!
Note: When you use this form there is an OPTIONAL percentage added to your donation to support Zeffy (a free online software for nonprofits). To opt out, simply click the drop down box and choose "other," then leave the amount blank.
